Charlottesville is the perfect destination for a girlfriend’s getaway, and Pippin Hill Farm & Vineyards is here to help you plan your trip. Complete with plenty of good food, wine, shopping and relaxation, this itinerary will show you how to spend the ideal summer Saturday in Charlottesville.
Start the morning by walking around the Charlottesville City Market, an outdoors farmer’s market where over 100 vendors come together to offer some of the finest local products.
Next, head to Pippin Hill Farm & Vineyards and soak in the warm Charlottesville sun on the Veranda. Sip on a glass of rosé and look out at the Blue Ridge Mountains, then move into the Tasting Room for an unforgettable lunch. Chef Ian Rynecki’s vineyard-to-table cuisine is prepared with fresh ingredients from Pippin Hill’s very own kitchen-garden.
Once you’ve had your wine and cheese fix, drive over to Barracks Road to Scarpa. This boutique is always up-to-date with the latest fashions and the attentive staff will ensure that you leave the store with a smile on your face. After you’ve treated yourself to some retail therapy, find a moment of peace at Neroli Spa and Beauty Lounge. The tranquil atmosphere will make you forget (if only momentarily) about all of your responsibilities for the week ahead. Relax and enjoy bamboo massages and mani-pedis with your girlfriends – you deserve it.
What better way to end a day of wining-and-dining than with a dinner at Red Pump Kitchen? This Tuscan-inspired bistro on Charlottesville’s downtown mall keeps customers coming back with its seasonally attuned and irresistibly delicious dishes. Be sure to pair your meal with one of Red Pump Kitchen’s curated cocktails.
